when you are the man, the myth, & the legend, what do you do for your 40th birthday?
dress up in red spandex and guyliner, naturally:
& you OWN IT. you make it your BIZNATCH.:
then you get a group of your friends together and convince them to dress 80's theme accordingly for the night:
some of them actually may or may not be FAMOUS:
just make sure that they are all willing to look ridiculous and make total fools of themselves:
(just like shooting fish in a barrel when it comes to this group, fyi....)
sit at the head of the table for a birthday dinner and reign supreme:
as well as work the adoring crowd surrounding you:
take a group photo and then be miffed that the dude who said, "hey! i have this same camera! i can TOTALLY take this shot!" was actually a liar. and maybe somewhat inebriated:
afterwards, hop into the party bus reserved in your honor and grab your hottest chick for a cruise down the strip:
make sure to apply a liberal dose of polo:
(blurry again. curses!)
then sit back and enjoy the hottest, most legendary & EPIC lap dance performed in the past twenty years:
delight in the fact that your entire crew is wearing your likeness on buttons:
something along THESE lines:
then rock out to the beats of a great 80's band while people ask to take photos with you:
how do you top off an evening like this?
by getting a mohawk. (i can turn 40. but you will never make me ACT like 40!!!)
stevekemp is a wonderful friend to all of us and takes care of business!
in honor of this momentous day celebrating all things edwardbellajacobjasperalicerosalieemmettesmecarlisle, i give you tom cruise auditioning for edward:
(and, fyi, my girls actually DO think that today should be declared a national holiday.)
this is the story of a beautiful princess named kaitlyn....
.....who turned sixteen years old and celebrated by taking a girls-only/ALL-OUT/you-only-turn-16-once trip to las vegas with three of her peeps.
she was ecstatic when she realized she was going to stay here:
&, as it is all-too-easy with the good things in life, settled right in to the lap of luxury in a real hurry:
they did some lounging in their suite:
followed by the checking of the view from the 37th floor:
which is when they looked down to see this:
so they immediately decided to do this:
along with a little of this:
they got all dolled up for the evening: (with fake eyelashes no less! WHAT is this world coming to?)
the 16-year old princess went out with her special birthday banner made with love by kristin:
the princess was so happy that she even (!!) showed much love to her younger sibling:
the ladies enjoyed a wonderful dinner in a wonderful place:
& the princess received special birthday treatment:
along with being a volunteer at the mentalist: (amazing, btw.)
the princess & her peeps then stopped by the fountains to survey the view:
& made their way into the super-secret-vip-lounge at bellagio: (without an invite. SCANDALOUS!)
they made new friends:
said the word "balls" repeatedly at the wynn:
enjoyed the waterfall in the shoppes:
and capped the night off by the waterways of venice:
the princess & her posse had a wonderful time:
& even managed to take one semi-inappropriate photo: (don't look grandpa & grandma.)
the princess didn't want the night to end--she & her girls stayed up 'til 3:30 a.m. until finally calling it quits:
and they lived happily ever after:
1988 never knew that it had it so good......hb old man!
who else but you can wear guyliner and a spiked collar and make it look CLASSY?
** in later this week to see more spectacular photos of stevekemp's 40th birthday bash.
trust me: it's worth it.
